Breaking tensile stress notably increases with the increase in IPA monomer content due to crosslinking effect, whereas breaking tensile strain does not significantly decrease with the increase in IPA monomer content.
The average tangential tensile stress in the edge of the circular saw blade is increased with M because of the superposition of tangential residual tensile stress.
After the heat source away from the central cross section (t > 61 s), the vicinity of both sides of the weld gradually changes from the pressure state to the tensile stress state; the stress value gradually increases; the tensile stress region continuously expands to both sides of the weld.
In the process, the reduction in the compressive bending stress thickness in the compressive stress area is compensated by an increase in the compressive bending stress level, and the increase in the tensile bending stress thickness in the tensile stress area is compensated by a reduction in the tensile bending stress level as shown in Figure 2.
After simulation of the mandibular protraction, they reported that tensile stresses occurred in the posterior areas of cartilage surfaces of the condyle.
When the sample is successively tensioned from the elastic stage to the plastic stage, both the increasing tensile stress and the decreasing thickness of sample can result in the changes of the measured impedance curves.
Many microcracks develop around weak bedding planes, but a large difference exists in the number of cracks when the angles between the tensile stress and bedding planes are different.
The maximum tensile stress of the arch rib web reaches 0.562 MPa at the age of 30 days, 0.901 MPa after 180 days, and then 1.022 MPa after 3600 days.

After being reflected on the inner wall, the compression wave would convert to tensile stress, as depicted in Figure 12.
The value of the stress to failure corresponds to the maximum tensile stress ([[sigma].sub.c]) that can be experienced by the simulated system.
